Wawasee knocked off one undefeated golf team, while a once-beaten team trumped the Lady Warriors in a triangular at South Shore.
Elkhart Central moved to 12-1 overall after firing a 181 to beat Wawasee’s 189 and host Fairfield’s 191. The Lady Warriors are now 10-6 on the season while Fairfield drops to 7-2 after the double-loss.
Whistler led the Lady Blue Blazers and the entire field with a 41 while teammate Libby Colby shot a 42. Frannie Rodino chipped in a 47 and Alyse Miller had a 51.
Wawasee had a 45 from Alex Goralczyk, a pair of 46s from Elizabeth Jackson and Mikala Mawhorter and a 52 from Kylee Rostochak.
Fairfield were led by Kelsie Robinson’s 42 and 44 from Mary Shipley. Alayna Fritchley shot 54 and Caroline Kauffman a 57.
“Several of the girls haven’t played (the back nine) that often,” said Wawasee head coach Steve Coverstone. “I thought a 189 was a pretty good score. Elkhart Central just played well.”
Wawasee will return tomorrow to the South Shore course for a front nine matchup with Whitko and West Noble.
